Jonathan Hill and John Eisenhammer, both senior consultants at Bell
Pottinger Consultants, are leaving to form their own strategic
communications agency later this summer. Hill was political secretary to
John Major during the 1992 general election and Eisenhammer has worked
as both European affairs and financial editor of the Independent. Bell
Pottinger is expected to subcontract at least one client to the new
venture, which has not yet been given a name.
